I'm very surprised that this series is rated 15. My 13 year old daughter and I watch it very happily and I'm very fussy about what she watches. There's no swearing, no sex and no real violence (it's all off screen or implied or people being shot with arrows, but not gruesome). Compared to stuff on TV which seems directed at youngsters I'd say this was very, very innocent. Also, it has such a good message for kids: good can win out over evil if you're willing to stand up and be counted.
It's a very well produced series. The acting is spot on and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Really good family entertainment.

Dc comics character Green Arrow gets a stylish very impressive debut season. At first i was dissapointed that this wasn't going to be a spin off of Smallville. Green Arrow had previously appeared as a supporting character on the young Superman show and had grown into a fan favourite but Arrow is a very different and darker take on the character. Spoiled playboy Oliver Queen returns home to Starling City a hero after surviving a shipwreck and being declared dead for 5 years but is disturbed to find how corrupt his home is. He turns himself into the vigilante Green Arrow using skills he had learned while shipwrecked on a mysterious island after his yacht sinks and goes after the rich, powerful and corrupt people that run the city. A very good cast, Stephen Ammell is good as Oliver Queen who quickly makes both friends and enemies with the police wanting to bring the Green Arrow down and a mysterious Dark Archer wants Green Arrow dead and is just as good and deadly with a bow and arrow as he is. Characters from Dc comics appear in the show, though minor characters that only comic book fans will recognize. A very strong pilot episode gets you hooked and there are twists and turns throughout leading to an excellent and gripping season finale. This is a better show than the fun but flawed Smallville.

Just finished Season 1. If you loved Batman the dark knight you will love this show (another reviewer has already written the best review too)To add from a housewife's point of view though. It is well directed and you can just sink into the show like a good book! It is gripping with twists and turns. I picked this to watch with my husband, knowing he would enjoy it, as he loves DC comics and marvel based movies. I did not expect to get hooked too, as I am more of a book worm than tv. You do not need to know the ins and outs of the comics it is based on, to enjoy this show. It has good over evil with you asking yourself are they a goodie or baddie all the way through. Great cliff hangers and a little bit of romance thrown in, but not too much to make it icky. It is fast and leaves you wanting to watch more. This is one of the best TV shows since 24 and to be honest I enjoyed it even more! Can not wait to watch season 2 and 3 hope they are making a season 4. I liked the fact it is not riddled with bad language either, just oodles of great acting, effects and story line. Loved it

If you didn't like Smallville because it was cheesy and like all other American teen TV shows then think again with Arrow. Think Batman Begins and the Dark Knight series... its dark gritty and fantastic. Yes it has its moments with the characters where there are past relationships involved but I absolutely love this series! I've got my boyfriend hooked on it too after watching 2 episodes with me. It's an amazing watch and I do recommend it even if you haven't read any of the DC comic books or know anything about the Green Arrow. This series is fantastic! Amazing cast and amazing series!

Unlike many new series, Arrow does not let you down after the pilot, but builds the characters, plot and back story brilliantly. Okay, every now and then there is a cheesy bit, but those bits can be forgiven by the overall quality of the production. Stephen Amell is particularly good and believable, and carries the series well. Many of the cast members are really good quality actors, although a couple of the main character actors I would replace. Particularly the actor who plays the sister of Oliver I find weak, but so far, just a minor annoyance (just as the rat-rug Stephen has to wear in the flashbacks).

Here in Europe, we're further behind in the series than in North America, but I find it so exciting to watch, I can't wait for the next episode so I've been watching bits and pieces on Youtube.
Fortunately, the broadcaster here in the Netherlands sends out each episode twice - first on Sunday evening, and then again late night Wednesday. Second time round you see more of what's going on, because it's so fast paced, somethings get missed the first time.

I'm really looking forward to getting the series on DVD! There is already a second series contracted - yay!!!

To add my 2 pennyworth . I agree about the general sense that this is a good solid drama well-thought out and acted. The problem for me is the central character. I believe Superman can fly because he is an alien. I love Batman because he is extended reality.- on the edge of what a human can do. BUT as soon as Arrow puts on his costume and starts running about firing arrows with ridiculous speed and accuracy my reaction is .... NO. He is human and this is humanly impossible. It is too easy as well. I get no sense there is any risk of him failing - though there is a slight risk he will be found out. Keep the drama , bring it back to reality. I disagree with the man who doesn't like the 15 rating. This character kills people because it speeds up the action. and means he doesn't have to deal with the problem of fisticuffs with a bow round his neck. In fact he kills more people than the villains. Life isn't as cheap as this series makes out - even villainous life . Sorry fans.
